OOTD: It's All About the Pants

With an ass and thighs like mine, it's nothing short of AMBITIOUS to think that a pair of skinny cargo pants could work.  But the J. Brand Houlihans are inexplicably THAT pair of pants that looks good on (almost) everyone.

The magic's in both the fabric (it's thick enough to hold in any unsightly bulges) and the cut. My favorite element is the ankle zip, which can (in essence) turn these into a straight or boot cut cargo in a flash.

As I am prone to do, I did snag the Houlihans in multiple - Vintage Olive and Sharkskin, seen above.  Here's the rest of my Friday look:

  • Tom Ford Jennifer Sunglasses
  • J.Crew Cami (no longer available)
  • Balenciaga Giant Day Bag in Electric Turquoise (color no longer available, other colors here)
  • Joie flats (no longer available)
  • Hayden-Harnett (no longer available) Cuff and Rebecca Minkoff Loop Bracelet
  • Dannijo and Forever 21 necklaces (no longer available)


Grab a pair of your own J. Brand Houlihans for $231 at Tobi.
